I have not heard from anyone else who is having this problem. I have not
heard
from anyone who is NOT having this problem either.

Are multiple servlet parameters from a #servlet working for other people?
Is #include virtual for a servlet showing up at the proper place in the
output for others?
Is there an easy way for a servlet to tell if it is being #included?
